Caffeinated Cuff Rack- Mug Tree Bracelet Holder

Caffeinated Cuff Rack- Mug Tree Bracelet Holder

Alright, this really isn’t a “craft”. All it entails is painting.

BUT, that means anyone- and I mean ANYONE- can do it. You don’t even need “craft supplies”.

I had first seen this set-up at thrift store counters. Now, they didn’t do the paint job that I’m talking about here, but turning a thrifted coffee mug tree into a bracelet display is definitely not a complicated (or even novel) idea. In fact, here are the motor skills required: (1) Grasp coffee mug; (2) Slide mug off stick; (3) Grasp bracelet; and (4) Slide bracelet onto stick.

I simply complicated things by adding a coat of paint. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.

Lengthy list of materials:

I found this coffee mug tree at a thrift store for a whopping $2.95.

Naked and ready.

I will admit, however, that it’s nicer than your average coffee mug tree. Nicely-constructed, smoother than all get-out, and made in California.

Since I intended for it to ultimately sit on my dresser, I decided to use some leftover paint from our bedroom. Using fancy-shmancy Benjamin Moore Aura in Polar Sky with an eggshell finish on a $2.95 coffee mug tree is a little ridiculous but it also meant I wasn’t buying more paint or brushes by using materials I already had. So there’s that.

Ready to repurpose! (i.e., painting)

Because my Crafting Garage was just too chilly (thank you, Polar Vortex of 2014), I set up a painting zone in the kitchen. Within an hour, I had a sky-blue rack ready for some baubles.

A fun, pretty makeover…for it’s repurpose in life.

And now the Action Shot!

Shall I wear one? Or all?

Super easy, surprisingly functional, and the perfect indoor craft on a cold rainy day. And if you like repurposed jewelry organization/storage projects, then you’ve come to the right place! I’ve upcycled silver candelabras and divided silverware/flatware holders as general jewelry organizers…as well as specific holders, such as a cigar box ring holder, industrial textile spool bracelet display, a found-object brooch holder, and a salvaged wood necklace display.

Craft on!

      Shanice, thank you so much for the invite! What time does your Friday link party start? I’ll be sure to add it to my calendar.

  2. I own so many bangles that don’t fit on my bracelet rack in my otherwise-perfect jewelry box. I could use something like this! Thanks for the idea!

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Happy to help, Brita- yes, those bangles take up a lot of room otherwise!! And coffee mug trees are usually easy to find in thrift stores. 🙂

  3. Brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing!
    Hope you have an awesome week!
